Testimonials
Ethan Allen (Owner On Air) ‘I had The Soul Federation at my venue On Air in Cain’s Brewery Village in Liverpool on Saturday night and they smashed it. The crowd loved them. I’m giving them a year’s worth of gigs on the back of it. Great band.’  
Mim Ashers (Client) ‘The whole process of booking, planning and then changing (thanks COVID!) was made easy and pleasant ... every song had our guests up and dancing for the entire night. We can’t thank them enough for making our wedding exactly what we wanted. We would recommend The Soul Feds for any kind of occasion ...’
Joanna Perry (Client) ‘We were looking for a band for our wedding pre COVID and went to see Soul Federation at the Green Room in Liverpool. As soon as we heard them, we knew they were the band for us. Richard was so helpful ..... They learnt a song for our wedding which we had for the 1st dance and the whole night was perfect. ...... we wouldn’t change a thing. We will be back to your gigs to relive the fun. Thank you!’
